Unknown Title

by Jonathan Hill
Originally published by on 10/05/2017

“I wonder if you could help me?' asked Arbuthnot.

“Certainly, sir,' replied the bookseller.

“I’m looking for a book and I can’t remember its title.'

“Do you know the author?'

“I’m afraid not.'

“Do you have any idea what this book is about, then?'

“I know there’s a big lion in it. And snow, and a witch. And there’s this wardrobe that some children pass through. Is that of any use?'

The bookseller blinked slowly at Arbuthnot, then typed some words into his computer. Then said, “I’m sorry but you’ll have to be more specific. I can’t help you otherwise.'
